your money         charts and
                     graphs
Comprehensive
Remove your
                vs    fuzzy-matching
personal data
                     algorithm locates

5
   Great design...


Doesn’t make
the user think
Interaction Scale
                              Requires
Obvious
                              Thought

                               “Is that a
 Click!
                               button?”

                           “Is this what I
 Click!                     want? Should
                          I keep looking?”
Make it obvious
what’s clickable.
Or make it
discoverable.
People don’t read,
   they scan
Minimize noise
Omit needless words
Users pick the first
reasonable option.
6
A great design process...

 interacting with your offerings five
          years from now?”

“How would it work if it were human?”
               KIM GOODWIN
“How would it work if it were magic?”
               KIM GOODWIN
“Because everyone on the team has
 the same vision, they are all on the
   same page for what it takes to
            succeed.”
               JARED SPOOL

Editor's Notes

  1. Design turned this...
  2. ...into this. Designing for trust / credibility.
  3. Design turned this...
  4. ...into this. This was designing the customer experience.
  5. Design rendered this first-to-market, first-mover advantaged MP3 player...
  6. ...a historical footnote by this first-to-product fit iPod, thanks to activity centered design. Apple designed the best system to listen to your music. Great products have a memorable and consistent story of the experience from person to person.
  7. Designing language to drive an action.
  8. From ABtests.com
  9. It’s a process
  10. Designing the experience
  11. User experience is broken down into a set of interactions with your product.
  12. I consider UX a subset of customer experience, or brand experience. This is inevitably what I look at for portfolio companies since I start with the marketing and work through the product.
  13. Also your personality. It’s not your logo or your tagline, those are design aids used to relate to people, evoke emotion, and affect brand. But what you say isn’t as powerful as what you do.
  14. What words come to mind? Why? Sum of your experiences. Some small, some large. Some of you got a survey about BVP where I asked these questions.
  15. Same as in a person.
  16. This is tough, but you don’t need to be Steve Jobs. Here are some concrete tactics you can use immediately.
  17. First, give me the elevator pitch. Tell me simply and immediately what it is you’ll do for me.
  18. Also sign in exceptions, when user enters incorrect username or password, leaves both blank, etc. Simply writing these out will lead to better applications by revealing complexity. Thinking in terms of tasks, not packing the interface full of items. Tell story about user goals vs perceived problem from top down.
  19. Go through various tasks in the application and justify everything that is encountered while trying to complete it. Tedious, but effective. Work on simplifying these.
  20. The low hanging fruit. Most of the sites I’ve seen are too complicated.
  21. Seth Godin wrote a book called The Big Red Fez comparing web site visitors to monkeys looking for bananas. If the “banana” isn’t easy to find, they’re going to leave. Your job is to place the bananas around the site and design the process.
  22. Arguably why Google beat Yahoo at search. Yahoo ignored what their brand was to their users, insisting on being a “portal” rather than “search.”
  23. Steve Krug talks about a scale between obvious and requiring thought.
  24. So you need a visual hierarchy and a grid system. The page needs to be broken up into sections.
  25. Every element on a page fights for the attention of the user. Minimize elements competing for the users attention.
  26. Cornerstone is redesigning this right now. Every element on a page fights for the attention of the user. This page has a few animations happening as well.
  27. They do not typically read through all available options and then make a selection. Known as “satisficing” from satisfying and sufficing.
  28. “I am a...” everyone fits this category, done. If self selection is crucial, make it the primary call to action and choose how to segment. Choice paralysis.
  29. Can probably figure out the difference between the first two, but then what’s test drive?
  30. Self-explanatory instead, let people figure it out. Otherwise designers have no freedom to innovate.
  31. Applying all of these ideas to the American Airlines site... (critique it)
  32. 3 concrete things they can do, here’s some strategic ways to influence the design process.
  33. Jared Spool. Experience vision. Great products have an easy to tell story that won’t change with the technology. Opentable. Yelp.
  34. Thinking “out of the box” and not limited by the technology. Concierge experience for opentable.
  35. Can apply to interactions, or experience vision. Opentable: “I’m in the mood for sushi, snap fingers, booked.”
  36. Done right, it can have more influence over your business model than marketing and business development, so get it done right early.
  37. Marc Gobé, author of Emotional Branding
  38. On Mint, we didn’t throw ad banners into task flows, we aligned the revenue model with the task of looking for ways to save. Sticking to principles of only presenting quantified offers yielded more clickthroughs and more revenue.
  39. Dissatisfaction is no different, but the tools for mass communication are extremely easy now, so it hurts you exponentially more.
  40. Marc Gobé, author of Emotional Branding
  41. Not surveys or interviews, but contextual inquiry. Product managers and designers need to get out of the office occasionally.
  42. Establish some consistency
  43. It makes the company lose trust with consumers when there’s no consistency in communications, it’s like having multiple personalities.
  44. In one portfolio company, each division has its own creative resource with the freedom to produce customer facing deliverables. Start with a single brand czar ensuring consistency and setting guidelines, and get a style guide when this becomes a bottleneck. When I left Mint, Siegel & Gale, looked at everything I’d done and built a guide out of it.
  45. Reduction through successive refinement is the path to simplicity.
  46. Otherwise new features tend to become more polished, and older features break down or become inconsistent.
  47. A culture that relishes “failure” and frequent small changes are the ones that foster great products. Jared Spool, UIE
